Oxidative style, bruised apple, more mushrooms. Be good with Bress chicken and morels

Tons going on up front and through the middle, then nothing. Just gas. If there's a finish, it's too damn subtle for its own good. Acid festival!

Brilliant focus and precision. If you've never known what that means in a wine, this is the definition

A new one for me. Extremely fruity and with almost a tad too much dosage.

Acidic and saline with little expression. Green/Strawberries. Seems overcropped or underripe. Lacking nuance especially for the price. If nothing else, would like a touch more richness from it. Curious how it ages. Really linear. Very young, might age well. If austerity is your thing cool, otherwise let the fresh Belluard flow for the $. Not to mention Tripoz and vouvray bubbles.
